About Us

BDM ArcScan was created in 2005 to bring the latest innovations in scanning and copying to the specialist library, archive and museum sectors.

With these sectors requiring the specialist solutions for book and document conservation and preservation, BDM aim was to bring together a complete and comprehensive range that could meet their requirements within one company with customer care to help them understand these emerging technologies.

Over 12 years later, BDM ArcScan has become one of the sectors most leading and innovative suppliers as well as manufacturer of its own ranges of products, exclusive to BDM.

We have also introduced our scanning services to businesses looking to digitise their paperwork such as HR files to make them easier to access and work alongside the newer digital files we now deal with.

Our achievements include:

Developing, manufacturing, and launching BookMaster, the only photocopier based book friendly copying solution still available.

Creating the MiniScan range, a range of compact and affordable overhead scanning solutions originally as A3 but now also including our A2 sized model.

Launching V-Master, a market leading and affordable dual lens scanner with adjustable v-shaped book cradle and platen for the safe and secure of books during scanning.

Becoming UK and European distributors for Unionovo; new and innovative book scanning solutions based on the latest camera technologies.

Creating our own In-House Digitisation Suite at our Milton Keynes office to offer a full range of digitisation services for all outsourcing requirements.

Offering document scanning, storage, and shredding services to businesses in Milton Keynes and also nationally.

Bringing other leading solutions providers to our customers including Unionovo, Microtek and Plustek.

Working alongside Kyocera and Xerox to bring their full range of print, copier, and MFP solutions at affordable prices, backed with our customer service.


Our passion is to find you the right solution or service ensure you receive our knowledge and experience to help make that decision simple and straightforward.

With full after sales service and support, we are your complete all in one solution/services provider.

“I founded BDM ArcScan to help libraries, archives and museums find a safe and secure way of safely photocopying their books and bound volumes. This was BookMaster, created by me in 2005 and over 12 years later, BDM ArcScan gone from strength to strength.

BookMaster has now being joined by another BDM developed product, MiniScan which has brought overhead scanning technology to over 500 customers and now includes A3, A2 and specialist v-shaped cradle models. We are also proud to work with other leading solution providers (such as Unionovo, book2net and Plustek) to bring our clients a complete and diverse range of solutions.

 BDM ArcScan has also created a complete and fully equipped outsource digitisation studio as its main Milton Keynes head office to offer another way for the heritage sector to benefit from digitisation. This has been a successful venture and one we have now adapted for businesses to also benefit from such as scanning paperwork and offering other related services (such as archive storage and confidential shredding).

 I have always placed the customer at the heart of how BDM works. From understanding their needs, we work with them to find the right solution and provide our full support with onsite training and after sales care with technical and user support.

We value every customer, and we thank them for help us grow to the company we are today. We look forward to continuing our development further and being your leading image equipment and digital services provider.
